If you celebrate Easter you know that it kicks off the spring season with fun family time and beloved traditions. Here at El Dorado Hills Town Center we have a community tradition, the Easter Eggstravaganza. This 2 hour event includes a massive Easter Egg Hunt with over 7,000 Easter eggs, the Easter Bunny, a magic show, face painting, a balloon artist, a DJ, games, and prizes. The community loves this event, and every year rain or shine new memories are made.
This year we added a fun promotion to our Eggstravaganza, the Giveback Basket. This promotion was created by a local high schooler, Gianna Compagno. She came to us with this idea to raise money for a local non-profit, and we loved her vision. Gianna believes that our high schoolers need to set themselves apart from the rest of the world to score a position within the top US schools. She was hard at work leading up to the event and worked closely with the community and local businesses. She ended up with over 14 baskets donated by Town Center businesses, raising over $1,800!
All proceeds from the Giveback Basket Promotion went to New Morning Youth & Family Services, a local non-profit devoted to enhancing the lives of El Dorado County youth and their families. Their main goal is to ensure the community is safe and all families that live here can thrive in the best environment possible. They offer counseling services and an emergency youth shelter.
We are very proud to have hosted this promotion at the Easter Eggstravaganza and even more proud that the idea came from a dynamic, talented, youth in our region.
